Structural engineers ensure that commercial, corporate, high-rise buildings and residential projects are built to be sturdy and secure to resist all connected structural loads (e.g., gravity, wind, rain, earthquake).
ArchStudio provides structural engineering service in first phase of construction.
ArchStudio focuses on the framework of structures, and on designing those structures to withstand the stresses and pressures of their environment and remain safe, stable and secure throughout their use. In other words, structural engineers make sure that buildings don’t fall down and bridges don’t collapse.
Structural Design of Buildings
- Concept, preliminary and “for construction” design and detailing.
- Structural analysis, design and detailing of super high-rise buildings.
- Design and detailing of all types of structures – concrete, steel, pre-stressed, post-tensioned, composite etc.
Membranes of Structure of Building
Beam is a flexure member of the structure. It is subjected to transverse loading such as vertical loads, and gravity loads. These loads create shear and bending within the beam.
A long vertical member mostly subjected to compressive loads.
A compressive member of a structure
A structural member subjected to compression as well as flexure
A network of beam intersecting each other at right angles and subjected to vertical loads
Cables are usually suspended at their ends and are allowed to sag. The forces are then pure tension and are directed along the axis of the cable. Arches are similar to cables except hath they are inverted. They carry compressive loads that are directed along the axis of the arch.
Plates are three dimensional flat structural components usually made of metal that are often found in floors and roofs of structures. Slabs are similar to plates except that they are usually made of concrete.
